Experiencing the Beauty of... Isaiah 40

God’s Passion Pursuit {{Week 2}}

For the next few weeks, we are studying Isaiah 40. If you haven’t done so yet, grab your journal and schedule and join in the fun!

The Scriptures – Isaiah 40:12; Amos 4:13

“Who else has held the oceans in his hand? Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale? (Is. 40:12, NLT)”

“For the Lord is the one who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals his thoughts to mankind. He turns the light of dawn into darkness and treads on the heights of the earth. The Lord God of Heaven’s Armies is his name! (Amos 4:13)”

God’s Equal

A lot of times, we try to find some rhyme or reason to believe (which leads to action) that God is our equal. We yell at Him. We critique His plans for our lives, as though, they were quickly and thoughtlessly made. When we do this, we miss out on many aspects of walking in relationship with God.

The Truth

How often we neglect this truth right here –

The Lord is the One who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals His thoughts.

We forget how much God is not our equal. God is unlike anyone we could ever come across, in this world. God is…

  • Awesome in power
  • All-knowing
  • All-loving
  • Full of justice
  • the One who is always for us. There is none like Him.

But, God has chosen to know you on the most intimate level.

Our relationship with God is the most vital relationship in our lives! (Click to Tweet)

The Depth of God’s Involvement

Lord God, You reign! You are bound by absolutely nothing. Even your mercy is described as “boundless”. You are the One who is Supreme and head over all things. Thank You for the kind of relationship I can enjoy with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

See Colossians 1:15-19


I invite YOU to join us, for our next study. We will begin a brand new study on September 11th, which will explore the temptations Jesus faced and the greatest sermon we could ever hear.
